UVA / Darden MBA Interview Questions & Report – Early Action/ Second Year Student / On-Campus

darden mba deadlines

The Darden interview was very unique and conversational. The interview started with the second-year student telling me that the structure would be 15-20 minutes of sharing my story, 5 minutes for Why MBA? Why Darden? and lastly 5 minutes to ask questions of the interviewer. After that, it was me telling the interviewer my story with minimal interjections to ask for clarification on something or further detail.

Overall, the interview felt like a conversation. As long as you know your story well and can concisely tie all your decisions together into one, coherent narrative that highlights your skills and leadership traits, you will do well. Additionally, make sure you are able to build upon your story when asked Why Darden? Why MBA? The interviewer will want to see that you know how the school will build upon your past and lead you to your future. My interviewer also candidly answered my questions which was very helpful, so come prepared with well thought and intentional questions and use that time as a resource. I was admitted Early Action.
